Would someone PLEASE put Darrell Issa in touch with Pat Toomey? Issa, the ranking Republican member of the House Oversight Committee is going for the jugular on Jobsgate. The neck that jugular is rapidly pulsating in is a hybrid of political careers involving that of Rep. Joe Sestak (D-PA) and several people in the Obama administration. Sestak is now in a race with Pat Toomey (R) for the seat currently held by Arlen Specter in Pennsylvania. Issa's office has produced a BLISTERING ad about this scandal that could and should catch fire.

This reaches all the way up to the top levels of the White House and it is a scandal that is easily understood. Sestak admitted in February that he was offered a job by the White House in July to drop out of his primary race with Arlen Specter. That is a felony and so is Sestak's refusal to disclose.

Stonewalling by this White House is nothing new. In fact, it's SOP. The unknown variable here is Sestak's opponent, Republican Pat Toomey. He has a national stage and can blow this scandal WIDE OPEN if he chooses to do so. It will come down to whether he's willing to put the good of the country ahead of his own aspirations for U.S. Senate - It's just that big.

The takeaway line from this ad is delivered by Sestak and looped by Issa.

"I answered it honestly."
- Sestak's response to questions about his claims.

Of course, if he DID answer the question honestly, the White House is guilty of a felony.

Wow.. Just, wow. h/t to Hot Air Pundit for posting the video.

Here is the applicable statute:

Jeffrey Lord has been writing about this scandal extensively at the American Spectator, starting on February 22nd.
